Alonso Lobo: Lamentations
& other sacred music
Alonso Lobo may be remembered principally for the great funerary motet Versa est in luctum, but his setting of the biblical Lamentations must also be counted among the masterpieces of Renaissance polyphony. No choir has a more distinguished tradition in such music than Westminster Cathedral Choir.
“rich and expressive accounts here by Westminster Cathedral Choir, with baritones and basses in particularly sonorous form.” The Observer, 5th June 2016 ****
“Westminster Cathedral Choir is at its best in the large-scale drama of the Credo of the Mass…though they discover a truly moving spaciousness in O quam suavis est…overall, a convincing introduction to a neglected composer” BBC Music Magazine, July 2016 ***
“Nothing will prepare listeners for the beauty of Lobo’s Lamentations…this, for me, is as good as it gets both in terms of performance and in terms of a school of polyphony beyond the works of Victoria” Gramophone Magazine, July 2016

Treasures of the Spanish Renaissance
Recorded in 1985, this seminal album from Westminster Cathedral Choir and David Hill is a true jewel in the crown. These are among the the first performances in modern times of the divine compositions of Francisco Guerrero and Alonso Lobo, and there is also a Magnificat by Sebastián de Vivanco, a composer barely known even now. These recordings date from the peak of a golden era in the history of this most illustrious of choirs, and have yet to be bettered.
